Engagements at last!

Together at last!

Taylor finally ended work in Kansas and flew home "home is where the heart is" - so that means Me! While in Calgary we thought we should take advantage of the time away from the crazy wedding house in Lethbridge. So we took a day and did a bunch of stuff. We visited my wonderful grandma who was tickled to see us and to finally meet Taylor. Then we went to Ikea to pick out our couch. Then we drove to the most beautiful part of Alberta, Canada. The Mountains! My Dad has the most amazing new place in Canmore. So he treated us to a game of golf, with the most amazing view. Followed by an amazing four course meal, and a hot tub looking into the mountain.
Then we woke up to Cecile making us breakfast and we ate our breakfast looking off the porch to the view above. Breath taking!

Highlands Ranch, CO

Mother and I started our trip to Highlands Ranch, Colorado last thursday. The trip consisted of some shopping (colorado has some gooooood shopping!), sleeping, hot tubbing, but most of all bonding with my in-laws! We had a lot of fun. The only ones that could make it to the weekend were Edda(Sister-in-law-in-law, haha married to rex), Rex (brother-in-law), Anthony (KD's husband), KD (sister-in-law), Marti (sister-in-law), and Dixie (mother-in-law).

Dixie held a bridal shower for me and it was a totally blast! I hit the jack pot this weekend, I got to meet my awesome new family they were a kick and reminded me of how the rest of our family is so I felt like I fit in pretty good. I also got a lot of great gifts, all either from my registry or something that I would never want to return. Can't get much better then that. The Bridal shower was probably the funnest part of the weekend, it was so well prepared and fun creative games (and no chewing gum! Yes!).

They thought of ten reasons why I would want to marry Taylor! I could probably think of about 100, but they were pretty funny and cute. Some of them were:
He can set a pool on fire
You'll never have crooked picture frames
He will always honestly tell you if your outfit looks good or not
He knows a lot about hair products
and I am having a hard time remember the rest, sorry!

This was a game and a present everyone had to remember what was on my apron and then I got to keep everything! Very cute, and creative.
